How to remove duplicate AD users from IDCS (Doc ID 2781823.1)

Last updated on JUNE 14, 2021

Applies to:

Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) - Version N/A to N/A
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Example: If a user changes a filter they may have 5000 users, for example, and with the new filter only require 1500 users in IDCS.

Goal

When changing filters or mappings in AD bridge duplicate or additional users may exist in IDCS are no longer needed.
IDCS customers are charged on a per users basis and if users being imported from AD are not users required in IDCS, the customer does not want to be charged for those users.

You may need to manually delete the users (or use REST APIs to delete those users) if there are duplicate or un-linked accounts in IDCS.
